It was really dark in there. But the margaritas were dirt cheap. And once my eyes adjusted, I realized we were engulfed in an epic seafaring masterwork featuring a naked man spearing a shark with the Mexican flag. 

Then the fish tacos came out. On Tuesdays Taco Giro does them for 99 cents apiece, so we ordered enough for two servers to carry. The tacos were crunchy little things on two corn tortillas rubbed with a lush creamy red sauce. There were no cups at the salsa bar, so we poured everything directly onto the tacos. A lot of getting up and sitting down happened ... But in the end I spent about five bucks, and was completely satiated. 

Weird fact: The restaurant is actually part of a local chain, but the mural is a hand-me-down from the last tenants, El Sabroso Oakwood Grill.
